Tiger Moth G-ADPC – a very Naval affair
The Tiger Moth design was derived from the DH 60 de Havilland Gipsy Moth in response to Air Ministry specification 13/31 for an ab-initio training aircraft and first flew on 26 October 1931 with de Havilland Chief Test Pilot Hubert Broad at the controls. The Tiger Moth went on to enjoy a production run of over 7,000, with a total of 4,005 being built during the war specifically for the RAF.
Our Tiger was a genuine De Havilland built pre-war Tiger Moth, originally civil registered as G-ADPC from 24 September 1935 until 3 January 1941. In January 1941 it was impressed into military service as BB852.
